I see a few people are coming to our blog searching for “Archer “Johnny Bench called”” or “what does “Johnny Bench called” mean.”
“Johnny Bench called” was a joke used in the TV show “Archer,” episode 1.2, which premiered last week.
Johnny Bench was a catcher with the Cincinnati Reds, regarded as one of the best in history. During games, catchers deliver signals to the pitcher by flashing signs with their fingers over their crotch region to hide from the opposing team’s dugout or runners on base. I hope this answers any questions.
Also, “Archer” is a great show, check it out. Thursdays at 10 p.m. on FX.
E: Also, someone in the comments section pointed this out, which def. makes the joke better.
